GameStop and Silver- Strange Bedfellows Could Make The Precious Metal Roar

Mon, 02/01/2021 - 00:00
The first month of 2021 was eventful. Bitcoin rose to a new all-time high. Digital currency is a rejection of government control of the money supply. The US swore in a new President. Many policies from the last administration are changing from executive orders and new legislation on the horizon. Last week, the stock market went wild as a herd of buyers ran in those holding short positions in GameStop. The stock that was trading below $10 per share in 2020 reached almost $500 this week. Meanwhile, other than some of the stocks with substantial short interest, the market declined. The VIX... more

Trader Dynamic Index – TDI

Tue, 01/19/2021 - 00:00
The Trader Dynamic Index is a combination of RSI and Bollinger Bands. We use a 13 period RSI with a tight moving average on top of it and another moving average on top of this. This is some kind of double smoothing. Also as a 34 period Bollinger Band on the RSI. Of course, the parameters and colors can be changed! RSIp = period of the RSI BBp = period of the Bollinger Bands MA1 = period of the moving average on the RSI used for all calculations 1 = original RSI* MA2 = period of the moving average on the RSI used as a trigger line STDev = Standard Deviation for the... more

Tue, 01/19/2021 - 00:00

It can be very challenging and complex to build these on your own just using Excel. On the other hand you might have calculations, or inputs that you cannot (or do not want to) replicate in CQG’s... more

Excel Charting

Tue, 01/19/2021 - 00:00
Perhaps you are pulling market data into Microsoft Excel using RTD functions from CQG and you would like to chart the data in Excel. When you setup the chart you would likely use “Auto” for the high and low values for scaling the vertical axis. However, Excel isn’t as smart as you would want and often will use zero for the minimum value and the resulting chart is somewhat flat. Below is the daily chart for the E-mini S&P futures contract displayed in Excel. A simple Macro can be used to rescale the chart to use minimum and maximum values for the price axis range. The downloadable... more
